This week, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey (RBBB) celebrates their 146th year of wow-ing audiences by launching The Greatest Show on Earth!® to a new dimension: Out of This World! Few long-lasting well-loved brands or shows last through decades, much less generations, because of how quickly tastes change. Yet Ringling Bros. manages to remain a family custom by honoring their traditions, feeling the hearts of their guests and creatively redefining themselves. We’re fortunate to have the world-premiere here in Los Angeles on Thursday July 14 – but check to find out when they’re rocketing to you!


Let’s start with the elephant in the room, the elephants have left the circus tent. Animal care was always a priority with Ringling Bros. and they entrusted their elephants with the best professionals in veterinary and elephant care, as well as educated the public on elephant conservation. Still, due to public grumbling over perceived issues with their elephant’s treatment, they retired them from the show. Though the elephants were a traditional part of the show, the numerous remaining traditions will lead Ringling Bros. to new dimensions.


In Ringling Bros. tradition, they promise to deliver a show with the same awe-inspiring acrobatics, exhilarating equestrians, beautifully big cats, death-defying daredevils and much more to keep your jaw open in amazement!  Some intangible, but definitely noticeable, traditions are the presence of 2nd or 3rd generation performers so the show has the same comfortable feel we’re used to – despite suddenly expanding their acts to all-new playing fields!


To keep up with today’s hi-tech society, this circus promises a more interactive and immersive story experience and less of a, well, 3-ring circus. Amazing electronic screens and a colorful ice surface grabbing guests’ attention pulling us into the amazing story of good vs. evil told while exploring extraordinary new worlds on distant planets of ice, fire, sand and water.  The audience will witness an aerial “space walk” in zero-gravity, a clown performing his antics on a pole 5 stories up, and Chinese acrobatics – while on ice skates.


How cool is this, too, that Ringling Bros. launches their new space show only 9 days after spaceship Juno landed on Jupiter?!  Gives me a kizmetingle…

    Wow! This looks really great. I went to the circus this spring with a group of grandkids. The last time to see the elephants perform. It was just a little circus, but wonderful.

      Wow, that must have been a sentimental show! I’m always newly inspired after seeing a circus because of the things the performers do, or the way they talk to and work with the animals. Thank you for wandering by!

    I have to say I always enjoyed watching the elephants perform and will miss them. Sounds like the circus is moving toward more of the Cirque du Soleil style which is cool.

      In some ways, yes, I agree. They are incorporating more storytelling and more mediums for delivering their amazing stunts, but I feel like it still feels “realistic” where Cirque du Soleil is surreal. Plus Ringling still does have some animals, while I believe Soliel doesn’t have any. Thank you for wandering by!
